Fun fact: JB's favorite food is spaghetti.
Eh - it's actually not all that fun.
BIEBER FEVER WONTON SKEEVERS
(Nutella Banana Dumplings)
24 square wonton wrappers
1/2 cup nutella, or as needed
2 large (ripe) bananas, each sliced into 12 rounds
coconut oil (or canola oil or other no-taste oil) as needed
1/4 cup cinnamon-sugar, or as needed
1. Lay a few wonton wrappers out on a dry surface; keep remaining wrappers covered. Place roughly a teaspoon of nutella in the center of each square. Top nutella dollops with banana slices (or you can do it the other way around, banana then nutella).
2. Keep a small bowl of water next to you for moistening your fingertips. Using a wet finger, moisten the border of each wonton square. Fold one corner into the center, then fold in the opposite corner. Then fold the remaining two corners in (sealing with water as you go). Pinch any openings so all edges are sealed. Continue with the remaining wontons and filling, setting the folded ones on a large plate or parchment lined baking sheet.
3. Heat a large nonstick skillet with about 1/4” oil over high heat. Pan fry the dumplings until golden on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
4. Drain hot dumplings on paper towels and roll each dumpling in the cinnamon-sugar while still hot.
5. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Serve warm.
|putting the nutella in a ziploc bag|
Piping it was way easier than using a spoon. When you're doing
this alone, do yourself a favor and use a glass to hold the bag.

|three corners folded in|
|four corners folded in (of course now, |
you've got yourself four new corners)
|pinching the new corners so the filling doesn't ooze out|
|I also made some into triangles and then |
folded in those corners to make this shape.

|adding cinnamon to sugar|
I didn't measure, but if I had to guess,
I would say I used between 1/4 to 1/2
teaspoon per 1/4 cup (I like it very cinnamony).
|cinnamon sugar mixed|
Don't wait until your dumplings are cooked
to mix the cinnamon-sugar (it should be ready
while the dumplings are still hot).
|sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar|
Next time, instead of sprinkling, I would roll the hot
dumplings in a bowl of cinnamon-sugar so more
of it sticks (I already updated that in the recipe).
